Today I woke up inspired to make my own bread, I saw a great (and super easy) recipe on Food52 and I just went for it. I had no expectations(the pictures are not the best because I really wasn't expecting to actually make decent bread) and it actually turned out great! I can't even imagine now ever buying bread again...

I survived my 40th, it was a great day thanks to my hubby and kids! I woke up to a house full of balloons and a table set with a gazillion presents. My husband made me feel like a true princess that day. My mom who rocks for having us also made some delicious persian kabobs that were out of this world, we really mixed up dinner representing all of our nationalities. I received a very special gift from my twin, a beautiful ring with our birthstone. Originally she was just looking to get me a ring but when she saw this she decided on "Sista Rings"! Thanks to the help of Julia Ballentine of Ballentine Fine Jewelry (every piece of jewelry I own is from her).
